“Get it together.”

In This Episode

Iowa is still too close to call as the candidates try to break through in New Hampshire, Mitt Romney votes to convict as Trump is acquitted, and the President’s State of the Union should be a wake up call for Democrats. Then Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg talks to Dan about his post-Iowa strategy.
